For the digital-only consoles like the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition console, or the Xbox Series S, you will be required to own the digital version of the game in order to receive a free upgrade. If you own a LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga disc version, you will need to repurchase the game for these digital-only consoles.

While competitors like Xbox offer “Smart Delivery” that lets you play your games on any Xbox or PC, Sony’s initial few months of life were a bit more delicate. However, everything appear to be running smoothly today, and most third-party game upgrades are straightforward and free.
